    Default Bye Week Plans

    I was curious to see if you planned to watch any football this weekend?

    I just read an article about how Papa John's sales are down and it's been attributed to decline in NFL ratings. For me I probably won't watch any
    football, but spend time with my wife and family.

    This is kind of unscientific poll. The article I read said the ratings decline is also impacting other businesses and not just NFL, owners, and players.

    Plus, heard the ratings for the Sunday night game (Cowboys vs Eagles) were well below the World Series, which hasn't happened in a long time.

    This decline can't be ignored or blown off due to interest in election. I honestly feel Goodell is going to destroy the game.

    I've attended one game and watched only 1 full game. Just another Sunday with the kids for me. NFL means less and less with each passing Sunday. I will probably pick up interest as the season moves toward the playoffs...depending on our chances at making it.

    Pretty much the same for me E except I haven't been to a game. I'll be coaching Indoor soccer on weekends all winter including this one, and doing things this weekend I've put off for months due to outdoor soccer training. Gotta say I don't feel like I've missed much.

    I would be foolish to try to turn RGIII into a pocket passer. It would be foolish. The way he is as a runner, we have to take advantage of that. He strikes fear into defensive coordinators when he runs outside. I'm going to let him be himself. -Jay Gruden Jan. 2014

    Simple.
    Hope and wish for a huge upset in Cleveland, and for NY and Philly to tie.
    That puts us in a 3-way tie for 2nd place, and just 1 and a half games behind first place.

    Seriously, Saturday I'll be watching Man City play Middlesbrough. Sunday I'll be attending a surprise birthday party for my cousins' husband. He beat cancer this year. Damn good reason to celebrate. He's a great dude.

    I'll be watching football without stressing out. Although I'll be rooting hard for Cleveland.

    May pretty much do the same as always.

    DVR the Skins game (when they play), have several radios going at different 'honey do' locations to follow the games live, occasionally sneaking in to check the chat and take a few moments now and again to see some live on the tube.

    Surprisingly effective on game day to not only get the 'angst and satisfaction' of the game but also get something done (and being able to throw stuff once in a while with minimal damage to electronic gear)

    Sometime later I'll sit down and take a look at the full game in about half the time it takes for 'real time'.

    Skins games late in the day will get more attention unless the weather sucks then it's all-in for the day.

    For the bye I'll probably just listen and check out highlights late in the day.

    I'll be checking out the craft brew scene in Asheville this weekend. Not thinking about the NFL very much at all.

    I'll be watching some college football and continue to build a database of draft prospects. Sunday will be spent at church and watching a race.

    Done raking. Lots of leaves from three large maple trees that surround my yard, plus one oak. Some neighbor kids are making an enormous leaf pile and took all the neighbor's leaves and are currently working on mine. They'll have a huge pile to jump in. They'll need a trampoline.

    Drive to NC, meet up with Boone/awesome friends FRI night, drink entire bottle of top-shelf bourbon, arise early Sat, fly-fish most of the day, drive to Ashville for SAT nite festivities (oyster bar/brewery, Himalayan restaurant, random live music bar), arise early SUN morning for drive back to Boone's neighborhood, play 18 holes, go out for awesome Hops brew/burger, collapse on Boone's couch to watch Oakland v Denver, fall asleep by halftime, arise early MON for drive back to NOVA.

    Loved me some bye week.
